From the minds and cast that brought you Star Wars: A Nude Hope! Called a “cult sensation” by Vancity Buzz, fandom theatre troupe Geekenders presents a brand new burlesque reinvention of a classic film about a young girl who is transported to a surreal landscape where she kills the first person to meets, only to team up with three strangers to kill again.

Featuring a cast of fifteen of Geekenders favourite nerdlesque performers, the event and theatre troupe is pulling out all the stops to present a whimsical take on The Wizard of Oz, hot on the heels of its smash hit, Star Wars: A Nude Hope.

Geekenders productions have been touted by the Huffington Post, Vancity Buzz, Yahoo Movies Uk, The Link, and Living Myth Media. Buy your tickets today, as they’re sure to sell out!

    Unsure if I'll be able to make it out to the actual main event, but I'll come by to the 'drunks/bite' part beforehand for sure. Have a great week everyone!

      Bonnie, I had a problem with the site buying tickets. The Friday Show is listed as a separate event. Try scrolling down to find it.
